If you have trouble with steps do not go or go with caution. There are two caves you go through. The first is pretty slick going down but not too bad. The second cave, the main cave, has some very difficult steps to go down. It's slippery and there are some big steps. About 3-4 feet in a couple cases.... More

It was awesome sight. The hike isn't that bad, my mom did it just fine. It would have been nice to spend more time there though, the tour guide rushed us out quickly. I would recommend bringing gloves. Some cheap gardening gloves are perfect if you don't want to touch bat droppings.

We were two groups, mostly waiting to get together and to hear an inaudible guide, we've seen far better organized tour of caves. Because of the living bats there is barely any lighting so unless you have a super night vision capacity. Yes you get at the end to the window, well it's a big opening and you see a... More

There were about 40 people in our tour group. We would walk for 1-2 minutes, wait 10 minutes for the group to assemble, and then hear a canned 1-2 minute talk by the guide (English and Spanish). He was about as excited by his topic as I am about details of the tax code. I was surprised that anyone could... More

This place was amazing, and once you get to the window it is absolutely breathtaking!!!!! It's a small hike, my 70 year old mom did it with no issues. You go through 2 caves, see bats, roaches, hieroglyphics.... then you arrive at the window!!!! No words to describe!!!!! They have parking, but since it's right on the highway, next to... More

Went with a toddler, and carried him most of the way. Can't take a buggy, child will need to wear a hard hat. If that's all okay then go for it. Lovely view from the window cave. We saw bats and cave birds. The empanadas from the stand at the bottom were also good. We turned up when it opened... More

Cool to get a little tour through the beautiful cave system in Puerto Rico, O yea, and the view you get after walking through 2 caves and learning about the bats and caves, you get one of the most stunning views I have ever seen!

Best view I've ever seen. Even the hike in was pretty cool. Not strenuous but definitely not your walk in the park. Tour guides are super chill they give you you're freedom and we had plenty of time to snap our pics. Our group size was 50 and everyone seemed to get their shots in. Must see!

The tour takes about an hour and it is worth every penny. The cave is clean, safe and well maintained and your group is lead by a biologist specialized on flora and fauna around and inside the caves. We learned a lot about bats, snakes and insects, but you don,t have to worry as there are not poisonous snakes or... More
